Essay question

A/D: The way a person is dressed in is a good indication of his/her personality.

话题提示

 

Sample answer

To some, clothes are everything. These people closely follow the latest fashions and take great pride in looking put-together. To others, clothes serve merely a functional purpose. These people regard clothing as practical possessions and nothing more. Most people fall somewhere in between these two perspectives, and I think that looking at how they dress can tell you a lot about what kind of people they are.

 

This is clearly evident in working situations. Is the person’s working uniform dirty, wrinkled, and messily worn? Or is it pristine and cared for, and seemingly worn with pride? By taking a look at one’s work clothes, you can tell what kind of character they have when it comes to work. Those who are dedicated and proud of their jobs will keep their outfits in good condition, whereas those who have little care for their jobs will reflect that attitude through their uniform. This type of rule also applied in office environments. If professional dress is mandatory, then the ones who care the most will be the ones most impeccably dressed--they will be sporting fresh-looking ties, well-ironed shirts and lovingly-maintained shoes.

 

You can also tell a lot about a person by the type of clothes they wear when at home. Are they wearing old, comfortable sweatpants, or tight fashionable jeans? Those who are more tightly wound and care a lot about fashion may be well-dressed all the time, while those who are more laid-back and casual will take the chance to wear more relaxed. Thomas, a friend of mine, is the type of person who wears casual but good-looking clothing everywhere he goes. He will often wear the same coat to work as what he wears at home. That’s acceptable since he works at a kindergarten and he has to be comfortable playing with kids all day. Just by looking at his clothing, you can deduce that he’s a down-to-earth and a warm person.

 

Admittedly, you cannot judge a person only by their clothing. Young people, for example, will often change their looks from month to month and year to year because they are in the process of discovering themselves. The impression you get from their dressing may not be accurate at some time. However, after someone is past this period of time in their life, clothing can be a fairly reliable indicator of who they as a person because their lives will follow a far more regular routing.

 

Clothing can tell us a lot about an individual. Looking at how someone dresses at work or at home can give you insight into their attitudes and the type of person they are.
